Eunice Barber to skip heptathlon and concentrate on long jump

Eunice Barber is planning to skip and the heptathlon and just concentrate on the long jump at the Beijing Olympics.

Barber has been experiencing injuries since she had knee surgery.

“I’ve had muscular problems since my knee operation, and with my coach’s agreement, I thought it was too restrictive to work on all the disciplines until Beijing,” the 33-year-old French athlete said. “So I decided to concentrate on the long jump.”
